A new look for a premier firm

09 May 2012

Trethowans, a premier law firm in the South, has unveiled a new look in the form of a brand refresh and a new website. 

Commenting on the new look, Managing Partner Simon Rhodes said, "We’ve completely redesigned our website to utilise the latest technology and given it a sharper look. At the same time we’ve refreshed our logo and branding to make sure it stays as modern as the Firm is, as we continually progress."

Over the last three years the firm has attracted a number of big hitting partners from rivals. Expertise has been added in the areas of banking and insolvency as well as giving further quality in depth. The firm has attracted key partners which has enabled Trethowans to build teams to drive growth for the firm. 

Simon Rhodes said the new look better reflects Trethowans’ position in the market. He added: "Trethowans is doing really well in spite of the state of the economy, new regulation and more competition. We are continuing to invest in our people, systems and our offering to clients. Instead of waiting for things to pick up, we are getting on with investing in our future."

Trethowans, which is nearly 150 years old, employs more than 140 staff across its offices in Salisbury and Southampton, and has been facing up to changes in the legal industry such as the opening up of the legal market. The introduction last year of so-called non-lawyer owned ABSs (alternative business structures) has brought in a new era of "Tesco law" that could start to threaten services such as conveyancing and wills. Trethowans seems better placed than most for the challenges ahead.

Simon Rhodes said as well as the new investment in the Firm itself, Trethowans has been dramatically increasing its involvement in the community with sponsorship of individuals such as Southampton born Olympic diving hopeful Max Brick as well as award competitions such as the prestigious South Coast Business Awards and the Salisbury International Arts Festival. Simon Rhodes himself was also the driving force behind the Salisbury Big Business Event.
